Pffft..it was. I finally watch figure skating again after ignoring it for many, many years but this final didn't exactly encourage me to see more.


Bart Veldkamp won a medal for Belgium a couple of years ago but other than Bart (who also won medals for The Netherlands), we have to go back to the year 1948 to find the last Belgian medal on the Winter Olympics.

Re: Rafa Recovery Chat Thread - Vol. 81

and its all retard scoring system fault they should just have general lines about jumps and let them shine in artistry. But NO. Because everything must be regulated to the T. And then you have this crap. I hope they are happy

Watch the Paris GP performances by Patrick Chan setting the world record, he was PERFECT, in BOTH programmes! After that already in the GP final the Japanese kid was better. They're both mighty good usually!

Absolutely. And really, FGM is not one of the better-known atrocities around the (western) world, although it should be.

Me too.

Disappointed yet okay with Patrick Chan's silver. Ice dance is on now. And later this afternoon, Canada and Switzerland meet in the women's hockey semifinals.

Re: Rafa Recovery Chat Thread - Vol. 81

Melanie, well I'm NOT quite okay with Patrick Chan's silver but who cares about me. Did the Canadian media give him a lot of grief? He did say he was sorry right after the performance. We all know he's capable of better.

The Japanese kid would have had his time at the next Olympics but at least he's so cute. And Brian Orser in always a bonus, isn't he?

Re: Rafa Recovery Chat Thread - Vol. 81

I saw a bit of the ice dancing yesterday evening (the free program).
I get why the Americans got the gold medal with their near flawless routine but I found the Russian couple with their Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake routine better to look at. The French couple looked beyond cute so it was sad to see them getting a point deduction.

The music once again was One couple danced to music by Ennio Morricone but.... they butchered the music. What's with ice skating and muzak?
